Reuse Old Toys As Clever Storage

Sometimes finding a clever solution to an old problem can be the most gratifying! Instead of heading out to the world of retail to purchase new storage containers, old larger than life Lego blocks were used to corral art supplies in this home.

When it comes to small spaces, sometimes you don't need a new way of storing things, that can often lead to more stuff in your house. Instead, trying looking around for items that can pull double duty. Even if your kids might need the item being used as storage eventually, there's a good chance they'll forget all about it, or take it upon themselves to find new ways to organize.

What was your proudest repurposing moment? Ours came when we managed to store all of our office supplies in a locked camp box so little fingers couldn't get to them! Share yours below!
